Rangers Lose to Spankees 8-2

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Dempster giving up 5 runs in the 3rd inning was not good.

Kins got picked off at 2nd and Elvis got picked off at 3rd in the game.  Those are essentially free outs they're giving the other team and at the same time they're taking themselves out of scoring position.

Rangers sure seem to get picked off a lot more often than Rangers pick off opposing base runners.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Murph, Hamilton and Nellie continue to produce at the plate.

And it was one bad inning by Dempster in the 3rd, he looked great (perfect) before the 3rd inning and after the 3rd he was good to OK with 6 IP.  Hopefully the 3rd is just an bump in the road.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: I had sure hoped that the last start from Dempster before this one would be indicative of what we could expect from him going forward.  Again, I hope the 3rd inning was just an anomaly for Dempster.

It's a long, 4 game series.  Let's hope Harry can step up tomorrow and have a strong outing.

We better all hope you are correct about Dempster - so far, so below average. We will have a great picture after 4 more starts.
